Narasimha Swami Temple - Keezhapavoor

BKeezhapavoor Narasimha Swami Temple

Once upon a time Kasiyapa maharishi, Varuna Bagawan and Sukesha Rish desired to have the Darshan of Lord Narasimha Murthi. They performed penance for a number of years praying to Lord Maha Vishnu. One fine morning they heard a divine voice, which instructed them to have a bath at the Manimuktha Theertham installed by sage Agasthiar and continue their penance close to the river Chithra around 40 KM northerly direction from the place.


All the three continued their penance for thousands of years. Impressed by their hard performed and sincere penance, Mahavishnu appeared before them in his most aggressive and anger avatar Narasimham with 16 hands and with Sridevi and Boothevi. After allowing them to have a perfect darshan for some time he made Simha karjanai and stayed in the same places as Archa avatar Moorthy. Such a sight is not found anywhere in India.


The place where Narasimha offered his darshan is known as Keezhapavoor also known as Kshathriya Sigamani Nalloor. The temple, which has found place in our age old puranas is said to be around 1,100 years old.


The temple is sited in a residential locality and among flat paddy fields. A temple tank known as Narasimha Thieertham is located before the temple. The temple is close to the main road and can be reached easily without struggle during any time of the year.


Other than in Keezhapavoor the 16 handed Narasimha swami offers darshan in a small hillock known as Singagiri close to Pondicherry and in Rajasthan. The Narasimha avatar that took place at Ahobilam in Andhra Pradesh had lasted for only two nazhigai periods. But in keezhapavoor the swami is stationed permanently to bless his devotees. This feature is not found in any of the other Narasimhar temples in India.


Devotees offer prayers at this temple for obstacle free early marriage, to get rid of the debt problems, to win court litigations and get cure from long term illness.


Special abishekam, alankaram and archana are arranged on the day of Swathi star, the birth star of Narasimha swami. It is suggested that those who struggle from long term debts should offer prayers during the evenings of Swati natchaththiram day to get quicker relief. Such prayers also assists in the conducting early marriages and in the growth of business. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are considered to be the most auspicious days to offer prayers to the Murthi. During the pooja performed on the Swathi nakshathiram day a Moola Mandhira homam is performed using 16 types of herbals. Special poojas are conducted also on the Thirovonam nakshaththiram day, Pradosham days, the last SaturdaysTamil monthonth and all Saturdays during the Tamil month of Purattasi.

Around 30 stone inscriptions are available at the temple. They inform that Pandiya and Chola kings offered donations and lands to the temple to perform daily poojas. One of the inscriptions specifically states about Maravarman Thiripuvana Chakravarthi a Pandiya king who offered land to the temple on the seventh year of his ascending the thrown. The temple is in Alangulam Taluk of Tirunelveli District. It is located around 32 KM west of Tirunelveli in the Tirunelveli to Tenkasi road and around 10 KM from Tenkasi.
